'J'o the liapliH Slate Canvculioii of Xor/h Carolin-i : 

With leelings of profoiiiul giiititudc to Almighty (iod for hi.s iiiaiiifultl inor- 
cios and Hi.s ahuiidant blessings, we present this our lifty-fourih annual 
report. The Lord lias so Avondorlully prospered the ellorts of hispeoplc in thi^ 
department of our labors, that its growth has been almost miraculous. I'or thi- 
past seven years a steady anil rapid increase has marked its course, until, iu- 


*teacl of iiiue missionaries uuder tlie supervision oi' your Uoard, tliere are now 
«ixiy-three ! Year after year, too, has the cause grown nearer and dearer to the 
vast multitudes of our brotherhood, and to-day the mention of the interests of 
state Missions sends a thrill to the hearts oft/wttsajids of its earnest supporters. 
'JTliere is no more plcasin"; teature of the worlc tiian that it is tailing hold upon 
the masses. 

Your Board has endeavored to supply the destitution whicli calls so loudly to 
us for aid. Acting upon the advice of the last Convention, larger outlays were 
made, moi-c men were employed, and sixty-three earnest, devoted, consecrated 
luen Avere sent out into the highways and hedges to break the bread of life to 
?iungry souls. As to how well they have performed their part, let the results 
herewith recorded speak. 

But after exhausting the means at ourcommaiul andgoingasfaras wedeemcd 
wise in tlie matter of appropriations, there were still several appeals for help 
which we could not meet. Nor is the destitution nearly all occupied. The vast 
lields referred to in our last report and which are already so well known have 
been only partially supplied. And with the exception of the interest recently 
revived on Roanoke Island, those three whole co!<?i//es— Pamlico, Hyde and Dare— 
•^till hang like a pall over our eastern border, without a single Baptist church or 
Baptist preacher. In the name of the Author of our salvation, we appeal to the 
Baptists of North Carolina to give us the means an:l pray God to send us the 
fiieii to go into this long neglected field.

At the last Couvention your Board authorized the Corresponding Secretary ti» 
employ, as far as practicable, the joung ministers, who are pursuing their 
•studies at Wake Forest and Louisville, to labor during their vacation in desti- 
tute fields, to assist such pastors as desired them in holding meetings, etc. As 
many as 12 of them bave x-eported their labors to us, and the results ai"e most 
wonderfully encouraging. They labored 13G -weeks, assisted in 80 protracted 
meetings, preached 716 sermon?, witnessed 870 profesiions and GtVi baptisms, and 
collected .?l,OH..'>"i to aid them in their woric. For farther particulars, see Tabu- 
lated Reports. 


In reviewing the year's work, there are many things to encourage us to re 
newed and enlarged etforts for the spread of the go.spel in the .State. The breth- 
ren are taking more and more interest in this great cause, as they realize its im- 
portance, and are rallying to its support as never before. Our Missionaries, too, 
liave shown great fortitude, devotion and self-sacriflce. It is to be regretted 
that the funds wvme in so slowly the first of the year as to cause considerable 
embarrassment to the Soard and some of our Missionaries to suffer great incon- 
venience. Let us put forth greater efTorts than lieretofore, that this may never 
ngain be the case. A large number of new fields are calling to us for aid and we 
should thank (iod for it. It is only an evidence of the growth of Christ's king- 
dom, and we trust that the Convention will make 'ample provision to send the 
glad news of salvation into every neighborhood in North Carolina where there 
are souls hungering for the bread of life. We must never be satisfied until we 
realize the object of our prayers, and have conriuered Xorth ( 'arolinn fin- .Tesus

20 MINI ri:s OF iiii; 

Outside Missioxakv Work. 

Several other orethren have been laboring for the Master, but not under the 
supervision of your Board. Three brethren have been employed in the Flat 
River Association. Elder J. H. Vernon has alto occupied two points of consid- 
erable importance between the Mt. Zion and Beulah Associations. Elder 1>. 
<iilliland has done voluntary work in the Chowan Association, and so has Bro, 
A. A. Parrish. 

Elder W. B. Harrell has voluntarily preached at Albemarle, the county seat of 
Stanly county. There is much destitution in this county. Several others have 
labored under the direction of Executive Boards of Associations and volun- 
tarily, among whom are: Brethren J, A. Rector and D. W. Conway, of the 
t'atawba River Association; G. P. Hararick and G. M. Webb in the King's 
Mountain; J. L. Smith, of the Sandy Creek; J.W. Gore in the Cape Fear ; W. S. 
Ballard, R. H. James and A. C. Davis in the Rocky River; and three or four 
brethren in the Cedar Creek,— 20 in all. These, with the twelve young ministers, 
make flo who have spent a part of their time in this work. 

FoRKiGN Mx.ssiors. 

The conventional year has been unusually fraught with missionary move- 
ments. A large number of men and women have decided to consecrate them- 
selves to the Foreign work and have gone to their fields of labor; Miss Emma 
Young, F. C. Hickson and wife. Miss Mattie M. Roberts, (since married,) J. jM. 
.Joiner and wife, and K. E. Devault and v,'ife, to China ; W. \V. Harvey and wife, 
and S. M. Cook to Africa; and Misses Addie Barton and Mary C. Tupper and 
F. M. Myers and wife, to Mexico. 

Unusual success has attended the labors of our veteran niissionaries who have 
been so long battling against error in the land of darkness. In Africa .31 have 
been baptized, 19(1 collected into their schools, about ?J00 raised out of a mem- 
bership of only 125. In China 05 have been baptized, :!0G kept in the schools, 
J()77.:?9 collected, with Oil members in their churches. To say nothing of the 
grand achievements of the others, our own beloved Yates says of his field: " We 
have increased the area of our work tenfold, and men and means should be 
increased in more than a corresponding ratio." And then his translation of 
the New Testament Scriptures into the colloquial of his province, is one of tJie 
greatest works of the age. In Italy 7 baptized, 112 scholars in Sunday-school, 
and 220 members in the churches. Here our work is progressing well, even 
under the very shadow of the Vatican. In Brazil the statistics are: 20 baptized, 
.30 .Sunday-school scholars, and 70 members. In Mexico, .")2 baptized and re- 
ceived bj' letter, 40 scholars and 117 members. The growth of this field and the 
interest manifested by the native authorities in our mission are marvellous in 
the extreme. Several valuable pieces of property have been secured and move- 
ments are on foot to establish schools which will be of untold service to the 
cause. AVe give below a summary of the year's work from the report of Bro. 
Tupper to the late Southern Baptist Convention : 

"The number of our missionaries, native and foreign, is 0.3; their stations and 
out-stations are 42; the increase of membership has been 17."); the pupils of the 
Sunday and day-schools number 6.S4; our church membership is 1,141; the con- 
tributions on the fields amount to Sl,077; the home receipts have been S80,465.S7. 
The work is expanding signally in eacli of the five continents in which oin* 
missionaries labor. Next year at least five chapels should be built, and at least 
Ten additional missionaries should be sent out. Our Mexican enterprise needs 
a heavy outlay of money. Into all our advances the Board has been led seem- 
ingly by the hand of Providence. The past inspires gratitude; the future stlra- 
nlates faith. The Board expects to go forward, depending on the liberality of 
tlie churches and claiming the promise of the.Saviour: '.Vnd, lo, I am with you 
alway, even uuto the end of the world.-' 

The war in fhlna, cholera in Italy, and tlie sni;il)-pox in Mexico, liaveall 


given cause lor seiious apprehensions, and call aloud for prayer by Christ's ser- 
vants that these hindrances may speedily be removed. 

It will be seen from the Treasurer's report that ?4,o02.ol have been sent up by 
the churches through him. Besides this, f876.o9 have been forwarded to Bro. 
Tupper direct, making in all *o,178.70. This lacks 52,821.30. This tails short of 
the 58,000 asked for by the Foreign Mission Board of the Baptistsof North Carolinn 
by .*2,S21.30. There is need of greater and more extensive liberality on our part 
as the work progresses, and the fields widen and the number of nrissionaries is 
increased. Theie are two more of "oio- 6oy.s" now at the Seminary who expect 
to join Bro. Yates shortly after the close of the present session, and we are grat- 
ified to know that three or more ot our Associations have already taken steps 
for their support as soon as they shall go. These are direct appeals made to us 
by the hand of Providence, and may God give us the inclination to meet the de- 
mands of his cause 

Home Missions. 

Wc are glad to be able to report that this most important object is receiving 
more attention at the hands of our churches than formerly. Our brethren are 
<?oming more to see its position as a factor in building up the bulwarks of Chris 
tianity in this Southern land of ours against the tide of evil that inevitably 
comes along with every wave of immigration. Texas and Florida are already 
rivaling some of the northwestern States in their increase of population fi-om 
Foreign shores, and from present indications, it cannot be long ere our whole 
country is deluged in this sea of moving humanity. How important, then, for 
the good of our children and of generations yet unborn, that we give " the gos 
pel to every creature" in our borders, so that the leaven may work upon the 
Inasses as they come among us, until the whole is leavened. We should re- 
double our efTorts in this direction, for we have not done a tithe of what we should 
do, and what we could do, if we would only make the effort. 

The recent report of the Home Board to the Southern Baptist Convention was 
decidedly more encouraging than were ever before. We give this extract, that 
our brethren may see something of what has been done : , 

•' Never, in all its historj-, has the labor of its Missionaries been more eftective 
in the promotion of the Redeemer's Kingdom, than during the past year 
There have been received into the churches to which they ministered 2,C6o by 
baptism and 1,525 by letter, making a total addition of 4,190. 

The work of the Board has never been better organized, nor if the means were 
furnished it, has it ever been belter prepared to push forward into unoccupied 
places, and to attempt new conquests for our King. The fields of its labors wer© 
never broader nor more inviting, nor the outlook for a grand work more prom- 

JJuring the year tliere have been in its employ for the whole or part of the 
time 144 Missionaries. 

Of these there have labored in 
Alabama 2. Louisiana 8. Arkansas 12. 

Missouri 1. California 4. Mississippi 1. 

Florida 2s. Tennessee 1. Georgia 6.

We would also commend the Church Building Department of this Board in 
the highest terms. Much good has already been accomplished under the wise 
and iudicious management of Bro. Nunnally, but much more ought to be done. 

Nor should we forget the duty we owe to the Indians. Perhaps we owe more 
to them than to any other people on the globe. We have taken from them all 
they held dear on earth. Shall we not give them in return the bread of life and 
the pleasures that never die? W. H. PACE,

Elder W. D. Prichard, Portsmouth Association. 

Dr. A. E. Dickinson, of Religions Herald, Richmond, Va. 

Dr. Hl'FH.XM offered the following resolution, ^\•hich was 
adopted : 

Whereas, It is a matter of exceeding great importance that the connection 
between our college and the great body of the Baptists of the State should be as 
close as possible ; and whereas, the custodians of the College feeling this, were 
wont for many years, to ask this body to recommend suitable persons from 
Mhom to fill vacancies in the Board of Trustees ; and whereas, we believe this 
to lie a safe and wholesome precedent ; therefore, 

Resolzicd, That a committee be appointed to recommend seven brethren from 
^^'hom to fill vacancies in the Board of Trustees. 

On motion of Bro. \\ . J. Pfi;i.i:, the following- brethren 
were elected a committee to nominate the Trustees: Elder 
Wii.i.iAM Kkxm-.dx, Dr. U. P. Thomas, Dr. R. D. PT.Em- 

Dr. TniM). Win ifielI) announced that a new Association 
had been formed since the last session of the Con\'ention 
called "Atlantic." and asked that the delegates from said 
Association be enrolled and recognized b}' the Conxention, 
which was granted. 

Prof. Chas. E. Tavi.oK. of Wake Poorest, offered the fol- 


lo\\in<^ report from tlie Board of Education and asked that 
it be made the special order for 10:30 A. M., Friday. 


Within the last year your Board has afforded aid for a longer or shorter period 
to forty-two young ministers: five at the Seminary in Louisville, two at Wake- 
held Academy, and thirty-five at Wake Forest College. 

This is a larger work than was ever before undertaken by the Board. It is 
painful to be compelled to add that the receipts by the Board are smaller by 
$1,022.48 than for the previous year. The result of increased expenditure and 
'diminished receipts is a debt for the work of last session amounting to $675. 
The greater part of this is due to the Citizen's National Bank of Raleigh on 
November 21. It is earnestly to be hoped that the Convention will take steps 
for the immediate liquidation of this debt. 

Three of the beneficiaries of the Board graduated last June at Wake F'orest. 
iSix are hoping to take degrees at the next commencement. It is deemed a 
matter for congratulation that the proportion of those who take a regular and 
thorough is constantly increasing. 

Aid is at present given to twenty-six brethren, all of whom are pursuing 
their studies at Wake Forest. In view of the debt, and the many and pressing 
applications for aid at the College, the Board did not feel able to give assistance 
to brethren at other institutions. 

The Board would respectfully ask the Convention for instructions as to the 
extent to which it should render assistance to young ministers elsewhere than at 
Wake Forest College.

A letter was read from Rev. JosKl'll PI CARTER, e.xpres.s- 
iiiL^ i^reetin<^s, and regrets at not being present. 

Elder HUEHAM moved 

That a committee be appointed on S}'stematic Eene\o- 
lence, and .suggest a plan. 

The motion was adopted. 

The President appointed Elders N. B. CoBH, Theo. Whit- 
EiELi), C. W. Scarborou(;h, J. a. Stradlev, J. \V. Perr\. 

Elder R. R. Savage moved 

That a committee be appointed to report on request of 
Board of Education for advice in regard to the aid of young 
ministers elsewhere than at Wake Poorest College. 

The motion was adopted. 

The President appointed as said committee, Elder R. R. 

Savage, Prof. F. P. Hobgood, Elder T. E. Skinner. 

The Convention then closed A\ith prayer by Elder PEKR^^ 

Night Session. 

Tlie President called the Comention to order at 7:30 

Song, " Jesus lo\"cr of nn- soul." 


Pra}er b>' Re\-. J. S. Hardawav, of Oxford. 

The chair announced the subject of General Education as 
the topic for discussion. 

Rev. Dr. Skixxer stated to the Convention that the 
Board of Trustees of Wake Forest College had imposed 
upon him the pleasant dut)' of announcing that Prof. 
Charles E. Tayia^k had been elected President of the 
College, and would now address the meeting. 

Prof. Taylor referred to those who had occupied the 
position to which he was called. As he thought of those 
noble men and the grand work they had accomplished, he 
felt like shrinking back, and yet called to this position as he 
was, at this time, b}' the Board of Trustees, he felt like it 
would be cowardice to refuse. He referred to the feeling 
that stirred his heart when he received the telegram from 
two of the Board telling him of his election ; of the struggle 
that had been going on in his breast to-da}'. The endow- 
ment of the College was mentioned, its secure investment, 
its wise management; the faithful Treasurer, and his stain- 
less character ; the Investing committee and its chairman 
and his love and devotion to the College. The Board of 
Trustees were men of God, whose hearts and minds were 
devoted to faithful work for the College. He thanked God 
for his associates in the P"acult}', the\' were men of prayer, 
desiring to honor God in their work. 

He referred to the students. He thanked Dr. Skinner 
and other brethren for their kind congratulations, but noth- 
ing had so touched him and reached his heart, as the words 
of a telegram he had received this afternoon from the stu- 
dents at the College extending their congratulations. He 
had no promises to make about his administration ; or of 
any new departure. Sudden changes would be dangerous. 

The College belonged to the Baptists of North Carolina. 
Some days ago he found a letter in his box addressed 
"To the Proprietors of Wake Forest College;" he thought 
as he looked at it of the task he would have to deliver that 


It would be natural for brethren to sa}- that wc ha\c 
fitted up the College and it can now go on. Xot so. wc 
need the young men of Xorth Carolina. We need the spirit 
of sacrifice and consecration. 

In beautiful, eloqvient language Prof. Taylor appealed 
to the brethren for their prayers and co-operation and closed 
his address. 

Rev. A.'G. ]\Il\\Iaxa\vav offered the following resolution : 

Resolved, That this Convention most heartily endorses the action of the Board 
of Trustees of Wake Forest College in electing Prof. C. E. Taylor to the Presi- 
dency of that Institution, and that we pledge to Prof. Taylor our sympathy and 

Tiie resolution was unanimoush' adopted by a rising \'ote. 

Elder R. T. Vaxx addressed the Convention. He defined 
true education, urged its need and advantages. As indi- 
viduals, as citizens, as Baptists and as Christians. 

At the close of Bro. \'.\NK's address the Con\ ention 
adjourned with benediction by Prof. Ta\ i.oR. 


At 9:30 o'clock the President called the Conxention tt) 

Elder ]. W. PkrRV. of Statesville church, read the g5th 
Psalm and offered prajer.

duced : Dr. H. A. Tipper, Secretary of Foreign Mission 
Board, Elder W. J. David, Missionar\- to .Africa. Dr. J. W. 
M. Williams, of Baltimore. ^ 

It was announced by the President that Elder X. B. Coiiii

whom he had left sick, had grown worse.

The following was read from Rev. E. Y. Baldwin : 

London, Eng., October 27, 1SS4. 
71) the North Carolina Baptist State Convention : 

My Dear Brethren — I had expected, by about this time, to have reached 
my new field of missionary work at Tangier, Morocco, and thence to have sent 


you a word of fraternal greeting. But I am detained here a few days in fulfill- 
ing a number of engagements I found friends here had made for me before I 
arrived. You will have learned from the Recorder much concerning my plans 
and movements, as also something of the great goodness of the Lord to me and 
mine in many ways. My only purpose and desire in now writing you is to 
send you my love in the Lord Jesus, and to entreat you to give me your prayers. 
God has bound me to many in the Old North State with strong and precious and 
holy ties — ties which distance or even death cannot sunder. My heart goes 
across the sea to them as I write. I covet not only their interest and prayers, 
but likewise those of all the great Baptist brotherhood of the State I have learned 
to love so well. 

I hope, from time to time, to give you some details of my work among the 
Berbers through the columns of the Recorder. 

Yours, with much love in the Lord Jesus, 

E. F. Baldwin.

The Joi'.nial rif. yesterday was read, c©rrected and ap- 

Elder J. D. HUFIIAM read the following extract from the 
report of yesterday's proceedings in the Daily Neii's and 
Observer of this morning: 

"The adoption of s new Constitution for the government of the Convention 
l3eing a special order for 12 o'clock, the document was read by Rev. Columbus 
Durham and at once Rev. J- D. Huf ham moved that it be adopted as a whole. 
This motion was amended so as to" consider the Constitution by sections, where- 
upon the previous question was called to shut off all amendments and discus- 
sion on the matter, and the instrument was thus made the Constitution for the 
government of the body, about one-third only of the delegates voting to sustain 
the call for the previous question." 

Bro. HUKHAM said "this statement does not represent 
the facts in the case. In our Baptist assemblages it is not 
required that the whole number of members present shall 
actuall}- vote. It is taken for granted that those not voting 
are with the majority of those who have voted ; unless there 
be explanation to the contrary. The vote yesterda}' 
expressed the sense of the body. 

Neither was there an}' purpose, in ordering the pre\'ious 
question, to stifle discussion. The report, when first offered, 
was recommitted and additional members were added in 
order that those who wished to change, modify or add to 
the amendments contained in the report. The previous 
question was ordered to prevent the useless consumption of 
precious time." 

Bro. E. G. Harrell, who had furnished the reports pub- 
lished in the News and Observer, attempted to repl}' to Bro. 
Hufham's remarks. 

Bro. HUFHAM raised the point of order that the reporter 
of the Nezvs and Observer had no right to a hearing upon the 
floor of this Convention. 

The chair sustained the point of order raised. 

Bro. Harrell appealed from the decision of the chair. 

The decision of the chair was sustained.

Elder R. R. OvERBV offered the following report of th.e 
committee on Periodicals: 

For' the Ijuilding up of the Redeemer's kingdom in our .State we know of no 
human agency employed more powerful than the Biblical Recorder. Where 
it is read in our churches, our brethren are in sympathy with all the work of 
the Convention. We most heartily approve of the course of the Recorder in 
defending what we regard as truth, and recommend to our brethren to take it, 
and use their influence in its circulation. 

We also recommend to all our churches the Foreign Mission Journal, and tf> 
our Sunday Sc/iool Kind IVords. 


For Committee. 

The sjjccial order for this hour, 10:30 A. M., being the 
report of the Sunday School Board, it was read: 


To the Biiptist State Convention of Xorth Carolina : 

It atfords us peculiar pleasure to be able to make such a favorable report 01 
the year'.s work, and of the success -which has attended the labors of llieoon- 


stantly iiicreasing luunbcr of Sunday School worker?. All along the lines pro 
gress has been made, new Schools have been organized, and in several instan- 
ces churches have sprung up as the results of the efTortsof the soul-winners. 

So far as reported, there have been fi/ty-sixnew Sunday Schools organized, 
many of thern in communities where the word of God is not preached, save by 
these faithful pioneers of the Cross, who have gone out into the battle-field with 
the sword of the Spirit in hand, and, with open Bibles and hearts burning with 
tlie love of a crucified Saviour, have carried the glad message of salvation to 
those who knew it not. And the standard of the Messiah has been planted in 
^.inany a heart made fallow by the softening influences of the gospel of Jesus 
Christ. Let us " thank God and take courage,'' and press onward to yet greater 
achievemen's for his cause. 


A most interesting, delightful and profitable session of our Baptist Slate Sun- 
day School Convention was held with the church in the flourishing town of 
Keidsville, July 17— £0, 1881, at which there was a goodly number of delegates 
from fourteen of the different Associations in the .State. The interest of the oc- 
casion was greatly enhanced by the presence of Brethren G. J. Johnson, of Phil- 
adelphia, S. A. Goodwin and A. E. Dickinson of Virginia, and C. C. Chaplin, of 
Texas, all of whom took an active part in the discussions. It seems to be the 
prevailing opinion that this was the best meeting we have had. 


This enterprise is just now three years o!d. The interest taken in it by the 
brethren, and the liberal patronage bestowed by the churches and Sunday 
Schools throughout the State, have been very encouraging. In fact, the work 
so wonderfully increased last Spring, that your Corresponding. Secretary, with the 
limited time he could give it, found it necessary to have some assistance. This 
was secured at an expense of •J137.50. 

For the success of the Supply Store, we refer you to the statements made be- 
low. At the beginning of the year we had on hand, (including solvent credits,) 
cash and stock to the amount of S900.o9. Our present assets are as follows :

From the above, it will be readily seen tlial the Supply Store is on a solid 
foundation. It has not only become self-sustaining, but bj- its steady income 
is helping to supply the necessities of the many Sunday Schools all over the 
State which cannot properly furnish themselves. 

Not only so, but we are now j^reparcd to furnisli our Baiilist chinclics and 


Sunday SchooJs, as well as our pastors, ■with any thing and every Ihino they 
need, of good, wholesome literature, at the very lowest publishers' prices. 

Another feature of it is, that we now furnish our ministers with such books as 
they desire at a considerable reduction from regular prices. 

We most' heartily trust we shall still be the recipients of the confidence, pat- 
ronage and support of our brethren all over Xorth Carolina. And we also ask 
that you remember that any contribution sent to this object will go to aid weak 
-schools and Baptist ministers. N. B. BROUGHTOX,

Was bota ill Chatham covinty, September loth, iSog, and died May 15th, 
J 334, in the 76th year of his age. His father was Richard F"reeman, his moth- 
er's maiden name was Martha Justice, daughter of David Justice. His mother 
died in 1S25, and his father in 1S60. Bro. Freeman professed conversion while 
young, and was baptized by a sainted minister, Elder Harmon, into the fellow- 
ship (we think) of Mount Carmel church, and was soon was licensed to preach the 
gospel. We do not know by whom he v.'as ordained. He married Miss Rebecca 
Jane Cooley, daughter of Bro. Jacob Cooley, of Franklin county, N. C, Octo- 
ber i6th, 183S. He was a member of the Baptist State Convention at Cashie 
church, Bertie county, in 1S34, at Union Camp Ground, Rowan county, in 1S35, 
and at Country Line church, in Caswell county, in 1S36. He served the Con- 
vention as State Missionary in 1835, and ten and a-half months in 1336. li: 
1S37 he was a member of the North Carolina Bible Society which met with the 
Convention at May's Chapel, in Chatham county, and was one of the appointees 
of this Society to represent them in the American and Foreign Bible Society, 
which was held in New York in April, 1S3S. He was one of the Board of Man- 
agers of the North Carolina Baptist Bible Society the same year. In 1S3S he was a 
member of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, and presented a report 
on Sabbath schools. In this report h^ stated, " From the best information nov. 
at hand, we suppose there are at this time not far different from 200 schools 
now in operation in this State, in which there are probably between 1,200 and 
1,500 teachers engaged in the instruction of 10,000 or 12,000 scholars." In the 
years iS3S-'39-'-[0 and '41, he was a memlier of the Boards of the Convention. 
During the years of iS40-'4i-'42 and '43, he resided at Wake Forest College 
and kept a boarding house and served some churches as pastor. Dr. Matthew 
T. Yates, in 1S40, at the Convention held at Johnston Liberty church, Johns- 
ton county, N. C, was received as a beneficiary, and boarded the first session 
with Elder Freeman. From W^ake Forest College Elder Freeman moved to 
Franklin county and resided there until his death. 

Elder Freeman served several churches as pastor, among them were Brass- 
fields and Concord, in Granville County, Rogers' X Roads, Rolesville, Heph- 
;:ibah, and Hopkins' Chapel in Wake county, P»plar Spring, Haywood and 
Cypress Chapel in Franklin count)', and Mount Gilead in Chatham county. He 
was a successful and useful pastor, having the entire confidence of his brethren, 
and was blessed under God in bringing many souls to Christ. W^e may call 
him one of the useful ministers of his day. He was a thorough missionary, not 
only did he serve the Convention as a missionary, but he gave of his means 
liberally to the cause of missions at home and abroad. He took the Recorder 
for 52 years, and said in his last days that the more than $100 which he had 
-pent for the Recorder had done him more good than any money lie ever 


spent. He commenced preaching about the same time that Elder George \V. 
Purefoy did; they labored much together, and were a great mutual help the one 
to the other. For several years he was quite deaf, which was a great affliction 
to him, but he did not quit preaching, although frequently^ hindered by the 
feebleness of his health. For the last twenty years, he was punctual to his 
duties when well enough to perform them. His last donation to the endow- 
ment of Wake Forest College was $ioo. 

During his last sickness he was happy and resigned, and told his family to 
put on his headstone, "A sinner saved by grace." One who was present with 
him in his sickness says, " I have never heard of any one during their last days 
and hours being so happy as he was; he rarely ever could speak of death and 
going to Jesus and his mother without crying and shouting." " He preached 
to everybody that came, and told them of Jesus. "' " Often when he was sick 
it was like a revival in his room." He was a man of prayer day or night, in the 
house or on the farm. A member of his family says, "His life lies, out before 
me, and is worth more than worlds to me." Surely a good man has fallen from 
us, but raised to God. His wife is a pious, devoted christian, and was always 
a helpmeet to him, both in his temporal and spiritual labors. He leaves a wife 
and several children to mourn the absence of an affectionate husband and father, 
l)ut with bright anticipations of a glorious meeting above. 

Jame.s S. Purefov. 

Was born in that portion of Orange, now embraced in Durham county, X. C, 
January 23d, 1S14, and died at his residence in Wake county, May 27th, 1SS4, 
having lived three score and ten years. He professed conversion in the fall of 
1S33, and was baptized into Mt. Zion church of the Raleigh Association by 
Elder Thomas Freeman in 1835. He was ordained a deacon of his church, and 
preached as a licentiate as opportunity was afforded. He moved his member- 
ship to New Hope church in Wake county. In 1847 Mt. Zion and other 
churches called forhis ordination and, by request, a council was appointed at the 
session of the Raleigh Association that year for his examination, of which Elder 
John Purefoy was chairman : his examination was satisfactory, and he was sub- 
sequently ordained at his own church by a presbytery composed of Elders W. 
T. Brooks, Willie A. Atkinson and James S. Purefoy, on the fifth Sunday in 
November, 1S47. His work of life was majnly in the Raleigh Association, 
having had some pastorates in the Central, Mt. Zion, Sandy Creek and Little 
River Associations. He was a successful minister : his labors were crowned 
with many additions to his churches. He aided in the constitution of a number 
of churches, some of which owe their origin to his labors. He was well known 
as a teacher in the school-room as well as in the pulpit. He served the Raleigh
